    Make is as uncomfortable as possible, inconvenience everyone and blame it on the Republican shut down. It cost more money to barricade those monuments, roads etc than it costs when those things are open.

    Where is the common sense in that?
    if you want here is the department of inteiriors contingincy plan in case of a government shutdown.

    The cons didn't shutdown the govt. the Democrat controlled Senate did. Too bad civics isn't something you took in high school.

    By not being a rubber stamp? They're not required (nor should they be) a rubber stamp for the House.

    The President, and the senate don't get to hold the house hostage with a 'my way, or no way' strategy without blame.

    That doesn't change the fact that it was the Senate that shutdown the Govt. not the House. The House did their job and the Senate by failing to negotiate shutdown the govt.

    Could I buy a half dozen of each? If I'm going to be able to make a fair comparison, I really should try both!

    You have no idea how difficult it was for me to limit the magic ones to only six, but people expect an honest, unbiased opinion!


    Eagerly awaiting delivery at your earliest convenience!

    You are really living in a false reality. The Cons put a poison pill in the CR and then complained no one would negotiate with them. You were once a business man. You know what a poison pill is and when its used. Its used when you want to say you made an offer, but really didn't make an offer. Sorry, you, I and 72% of other Americans knows the Cons own this one.

    Maybe they owned it at the very beginning, however, the moment the repubs started backing off repeal, for lessor options, and Obama, and Reid started hold them hostage for 'my way, or no way', it became owned lock, stock, and barrel by libs.

    maybe because raising the debt ceiling and keeping the government funding are part of the governments jobs.
